KUALA LUMPUR: Popular songbird Shila Amzah, who has made a name for herself locally and internationally, is this year’s Puteri Umno Female Icon.

Shila, whose real name is Nurshahila Mohd Hamzah, was given the award for her achievements in the entertainment industry.

In a video message aired at the Puteri Umno meet, Shila thanked Wanita Umno for the award and called on other young women to continue pursuing their dreams.

“To all the young women who are listening to me, I hope you find the strength to serve the party and steer youth to greater heights,” she said, drawing cheers from the crowd.

Puteri Umno delegates, many of whom are diehard fans of Shila, also cheered loudly when her father, veteran entertainer ND Lala, accepted the award from Puteri chief Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin.

Shila was one of four young women who were presented with the award.

Final-year law student and international debate champion Maizura Mokhsein, online shopping portal FashionValet director Vivy Sofinas Yusof and national athlete Fatehah Mustapa were the other recipients.
